    Hello all,
    I have been checking this thread for awhile and couldn't find any info on this.
    The issue I seem to be having is a write protect error on a 1gig "H" card.
    I seem to get pictures from a couple of dives then "poof" the card thinks it is write protected. I have now reset the camera to default.And reformatted the card."Bingo" the camera comes up with a card error.
    Problem.. This is the second 1 gig" H" that has gone bad since I bought the camera a few months ago.
    The 512 mb "m" card seems to be working ok but I have not used it very much.

    Anyone have any similar experince?
    I wonder how many H cards circut city will let me exchange before they cut me off ??

    I've never heard of that issue before. Keep in mind that if Circuit City sold you two bad ones in a row maybe they just got a bad batch of them in. I would just speak with a manager and ask to have my money returned and then go somewhere else to make the purchase. I once had the same issue with a 1G DIMM for my PC. Kept taking it back and they kept giving me bad ones until I just asked for my money back and then made the purchase somewhere else.


    Dive Safe,
    Gary

    Still have mine... looking for another as a backup..., just because I have so much invested in the housing, and it's not THAT bad... tho a sexy DSLR or a 2nd strobe might help w/ some backscatter issues I have....

    And I've chucked w/ rechargeables.... I prefer Walgreens CRV3's...

    I have two, bought the original one, then bought a back up in case a of a flood and never pulled it from the box. The best way, hopefully, to prevent a flood. DLSR's are really great, but much heavier and much more loss in a flood.
